    Here is a small drum loop:

    Does anyone recognize the instrument used as a percussion, behind the kick drum?

    Not sure, could be a small Djembe or a Darbouka.
     
  4. I'm fairly certain it is a Darbouka. I have one that I play regularly so am familiar with the thwack of the instrument.

    thanks guys, you're right it'a most likely a darbouka; I have seen them before but I never knew the name of the instrument!

    It's a processed can/pot from the kitchen.

    After experimenting, it sounds more like a Khol as it has more of a wooden sound than a darbouka.

  10. Nah, this is a Khol...



    and this is a darbouka.



    Not even close, and I didn't even choose a metal one that I believe was used in the OP's now deleted sound example to keep it a more fair showing.

    Why not be smart and use both and maybe even with congas? If the pitches match, of course.

    I am not sure, it sounds like a Darbuka... but i think it's a pitched and equalised Djembe :guru:

    Since the file was gone, here is a re-upload: https://we.tl/5Mpm5zLjOM

    I hear a wooden tone in it, does anyone else have the same feel?
